Wisconsin Ag in the Classroom offers an annual essay contest for fourth and fifth grade students. Each year the topic has specific lesson plans, activities and other resources that teachers and home school parents can use to teach about Wisconsin agriculture. The 2014-2015 topic is “Why are bees important to Wisconsin agriculture?” This year’s contest will be sponsored by Frontier Servco FS, We Energies and the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation.
The College of Fine Arts and Communication at UW-Stevens Point presents "Beyond the Hive" November 10th though December 7th. Beyond the Hive includes over 14 major events and a bee related art exhibition at the Edna Carlsten Art Gallery. More information can be found at http://www.uwsp.edu/cofac/Pages/beyond-the-hive.aspx .
